Few things rival the pleasure of settling into a hot, bubbling Jacuzzi with the setting sun on the horizon, friends by your side and your favorite tipple in hand.
Whirlpools, hot tubs and splash pools provide soothing hydrotherapy at the end of a long day. They rejuvenate aching muscles after high-impact activities, from a day spent scuba diving beneath the waves or a morning hike up the Pitons. And they provide an alluring way to unwind and leave your stresses behind. Ideally suited for all age groups, they’re found across motor and sailing yachts sized 30m-plus, with some even sunken into the deck to maintain a sleek, flush profile.
The adjustable water temperature makes Jacuzzis an enjoyable past-time from morning through to night, not to mention a thrilling experience even in the rain. Whether cruising Norway’s icy fjords or island hopping around the balmy Bahamas, a dip in the hot tub is a great onboard activity.
In fact, they’re so popular with the yachting crowd, that a growing number of larger sized superyachts often include more than one, with the sun deck, private owner’s deck and aft deck the most common areas. Even when the yacht is underway and all watersports are out of action, an on-deck whirlpool ensures a bikini-clad splash is always on the cards.
